HI , I have just been reading a post on pio about dental costs. OMG they are extortionate. I would have responded on there but thought as we are heading to Adeliade that I would get advice from the people already there. How does the dental system work there? Do you get any help at all with costs? We are a family of 5 and my husband has quite a lot of trouble with his teeth so I am terrified that the kids may follow suit and end up bankrupting us. I am not that bothered about having medical insurance as I think the state care looks adequate enough plus i doubt we'll earn above the threshold for no help. I think I am right in thinking there is a medicard system?
How much do you reckon dentists cost you, and is there a way of getting just dental insurance, is it worthwhile etc?
